Doug Unplugs on the Farm
By: Dan Yaccarino
Doug, an adorable golden robot who wants to learn about his world, returns in his second book Doug Unplugs on the Farm. As a city robot, Doug doesn’t know much about what happens on a farm. He has downloaded information about cows and plows and pigs, but he prefers to learn by doing. While he knows milk comes from cows, he learns that a cow’s tongue feels rough. As he helps out a local farm girl, he finds all sorts of new information, like the fact that hay is prickly and fresh apples straight from the tree are delicious (and that the horse thinks the apples AND the hay are delicious!)
This sweet, simple book shows how learning things first-hand can mean so much more to a child than ‘downloading’ things from the internet. There’s so many senses for us to use while we take in new experiences. Use this book to talk with your little one about how taste, smell, sound, and touch can change the way we look at the world!
